Quick Thoughts: Wheres the arm hair?

Im setting here after dinner reading the latest issue of Game Center. If you guys are ever at Walmart, stop by the electronics department and grab and issue. The articles are a good quick read and the best part is, its free. Anyway, Im reading the article about Madden 15 being the best football game ever made.

Assassins Creed: Pirates Released for WP8 and WIN8

Ubisoft has released Assassin's Creed: Pirates, for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.1 OS.

Wait till this one goes on sale peeps.
